This past Wednesday we saw This American Life live at the Paramount in Seattle.
Ira Glass was walking around in the foyer before the show, and we got to meet him!
And talk to him!
And shake his hand!
Of course I had absolutely nothing redeeming to say because I was completely star-struck. We even forgot to tell him that we named our kitten after him. But I got to cut in the bar line and buy a bottle of water for him! (I'm such a hopeless fan.) And he was (as is everyone) amused by the fact that Nick and I work for Microsoft and Google.
Oh my god, I bought him water! I am so 13 years old again.
